Gay and Lesbian couples. LGBT
Sadly not all couples are able to marry for social or legal reasons. In this case a Commitment Ceremony can be a beautiful way to express your feelings and love for one another. You may want to exchange vows and promises to each other and exchange rings as a sign of your love and commitment to each other.
Currently same sex marriages are not legal in Australia but a Commitment Ceremony performed before your family and friends acknowledges your love and commitment to each other.
There are all manner of rituals which you can incorporate into commitment ceremonies which may include candle lighting, hand fasting, a wine or sand ceremony, rose ceremony, ring warming, gift-giving between the couple, or any number of other special rituals to choose from.
A special Commitment Certificate will be presented in recognition of your ceremony.
Although planning a same sex ceremony may require a little thinking “out” of the box, this is a great time to exercise your creativity and improve on some of the lovely wedding traditions that are out there. From the processional to the recessional, you can create a beautiful ceremony that truly reflects your values and the love you share
I will assist you in designing a ceremony that will reflect your love and commitment to each other and to make the ceremony a memory to cherish.
